    Well, guess what friends and family, and all our other readers? It snowed again here! Then it cleared enough for some adventures and work, and then it snowed again. Wishing you all a great week from Davis.

    As the snows fall around us and the wind occasionally howls, the team take part in a station auction and quiz night, look to the night skies, send some very engaging government Tweets and get down to the work of projects, maintenance, stocktakes and science.

    As the sun moves a little higher in the sky the team have done us proud once again. The carpenter's hammer's in the final nail on the coffin of the Davis Winter Olympics competition, the infrastructure team manoeuvres a grease trap, green auroras light the way through the night, the Doc takes a refresher on first aid kits and completes her weekly dozen with our very own sub-editor Brendan H.

Enjoy and thanks for reading!

    Greetings to you all, our dear friends to the north with whom we once again share the warm rays of the sun with. That's right, it reappeared this week and under its warming glow we trained, measured, camped, celebrated, and strove to travel farthest.
